A man who was assaulted in a city pub has been told his case has been closed.
Mr Paston, who lives in Latimer Road, said: "It's frustrating because I've had a lot going on recently in addition to the assault.
"As well as the stroke I suffered earlier in the year I have now had a heart monitor fitted which I'm struggling with.
"I have also had a bowel cancer scare and will be going for a scan soon - it's just all happening at once."
At the time he thanked staff at the city centre pub for getting him to hospital.
A police spokesman said: "Following further enquiries no new evidence was found.
"A man was arrested in connection with the incident but was later released without charge and no further action will be taken.
